‘I’m not dead, ‘cause I never quit:’ The dirt with country-soul belter T. Graham Brown

During a no-holds barred conversation with T. Graham Brown, the ’80s country-soul singer covers Elvis Presley, George Jones, Richard Pryor, Jesus Christ, “The Andy Griffith Show,” upstaging Garth Brooks, and being detained by JFK Airport security. Seen above is an alternate color shot from the album cover shoot for Brown’s Grammy-nominated gospel record “Forever Changed.” Lead single “He’ll Take Care of You,” featuring Vince Gill, was unleashed on June 27, 2014, while the album belatedly appeared seven months later on the Mansion Entertainment label.

During a no-holds barred, exclusive conversation with versatile singer-songwriter T. Graham Brown, almost every facet of his 40-year career was examined. From the cotton fields of Arabi to the boulevard of fulfilled dreams on Nashville’s Music Row, the chart-topping “Don’t Go to Strangers” song stylist had plenty of anecdotes to share.
